Where Freedoms Collide: A Spirit & Place Event 
November 5, 2018  at the Indiana Landmarks Center, Cook Theatre

How do we balance minority and majority rights? America's history is full of intersections where the rights of the minority conflict with the rights of the majority. Where the promise to protect individual liberty conflicts with the promise to protect our communities from harm, foreign and domestic. Join the ACLU for a moderated conversation about the intersection where competing rights, and competing values, must be resolved. We will look at topics such as immigration and President Trump’s travel ban, as well as RFRA and LGBTQ rights—all while considering the diverse country we live in and how we can best work to find the right balance that will keep all Americans free, safe and equal.
